We are the 3D printing arm of a larger company called Express Group Ltd. Fixing printers since 1988, today we are a Specialist Parts Distributor and Experts in 3D Printing.
We take quality control very seriously, which is why we are audited for ISO9001:2015 certification, this helps ensure we provide great customer service.
Markforged makes industry-leading 3D printers for applications in engineering, manufacturing, product design and functional prototyping. Print metal, carbon fibre, high-temp fibreglass, fibreglass, Kevlar and more. Print parts, tools, and fixtures stronger than metal, or even in metal. The possibilities are endless, and the 3D printers are tried, tested and proven in industry. Quality is the Markforged difference. This is a brand you can rely on to deliver consistency every time.

Markforged bring their revolutionary CFF technology to the desktop with the Onyx Pro. Reinforce the carbon fibre infused nylon (onyx) base with continuous fibreglass for even more superior strength in your parts.
Show parts to your customers directly from the print bed - no post processing required.
The Markforged Onyx Pro is an industrial-grade 3D printer with a difference. With it, you can create prototypes, end-use parts and consumer-facing products that have outstanding strength, wear resistance and durability, and a glorious matte black finish. Start printing with Onyx filament, a chopped carbon fibre and nylon hybrid to create super-strong, tough parts, or go one step further by infusing parts with fiberglass.
Onyx + Fiberglass = Super-Strong, Super-Durable Parts
The Onyx Pro is a Fused Filament Fabrication 3D printer with dual extruders. Designed from the ground up to 3D print carbon fibre, the Onyx Pro has wear-resistant nozzles and industrial-grade mechatronics to ensure maximum uptime and reliability. It supports two materials: Onyx and Fiberglass. Onyx filament is part nylon, part chopped carbon fibre. On its own, it offers outstanding dimensional stability, and the toughness and wear resistance of nylon. However, the Onyx Pro can also print Fiberglass CFF. This material is electrically insulating and has an extremely high compressive strength rating of 97 MPa. You can infuse Onyx parts with Fiberglass CFF, to create end-use parts that are as strong as metal.
Feature-Packed, and Built with Engineers in Mind
The Onyx Pro is the first Markforged 3D printer to have ‘Turbo Print’, a feature that enables you to print parts at twice the print speed, with no loss of surface detail. Printed at 100-microns, ‘Turbo Print’ reduces print times considerably while keeping parts true to their CAD design. In addition to this, the Onyx Pro has Wi-Fi and is linked to Eiger, Markforged’s cloud-based 3D printing software. Eiger is a dream to use; it has a feature-rich tool set with an STL parts library and an intuitive interface. Eiger also slices your CAD design for you, so it’s an all in one software that will save you time. And, best of all, the Onyx Pro comes with everything you need to get 3D printing right away. In the box, you get the printer (of course), an 800cc Onyx spool, a 50cc Fiberglass CFF spool and an extra print bed.
All in all, the Onyx Pro is an outstanding 3D printer for engineers. It commands a premium over the Onyx One, but with the ability to print Fibreglass, it is the more capable machine.
What People Say
“The lightweight strength of even just Onyx alone and the manufacturing complexity additive manufacturing allows [meant] builders created unique, lightweight designs that stood out in the arena. Foiled, which ended up taking first place, had a fiber reinforced chassis and weapon insert”
– Alex Crease, Markforged on printing battle robots
“Onyx is one of my favourite materials because it combines stronger composite material with the chemical resistivity of nylon”
– J.R.Everett, Dixon Valve
“Since we do a lot of low volume or one-off jobs, 3D printing is a great way to do that cost effectively...it’s pretty quick and it’s not as expensive as other manufacturing methods.”
– Alan Rencher, Media Blackout
Many 3D printers lay claim to being ‘industrial-grade’ but when you delve into their material list, rarely do you find anything more durable than nylon.
That’s where Markforged 3D printers differ. In the case of the Desktop and Industrial series 3D printers, these use nylon or Onyx as the base material (Onyx is a proprietary filament made by Markforged, it’s part nylon, part chopped carbon fibre). You can then reinforce prints with continuous strands of a stronger composite - carbon fibre, fibreglass, or Kevlar - to create truly industrial-grade prototypes and end-use parts.
For example, parts printed in carbon fibre are stronger than 6061-T6 aluminium. The Desktop series includes the Mark Two, Onyx One and Onyx Pro, and the Industrial series the X7, X5, and X3. There’s a printer for every application.
Then there’s the Metal X, Markforged’s greatest machine yet. This 3D printer utilises a process called ADAM (Atomic Diffusion Additive Manufacturing) to print parts in powdered metal surrounded by a plastic support. The parts are then sintered in a furnace externally to become solid. This enables you to manufacture metal parts with geometries and details that would be impossible with subtractive manufacturing processes.
